Matt Mershon




Matt Mershon joined Channel 7 in September 2013 as a general assignment reporter.

Mershon comes to Little Rock from WTVO-TV in Rockford, Illinois. There, he was also a general assignment reporter covering everything from city politics and slumlords to festivals and comfort dogs.

Mershon graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism. While in school, Mershon received a first place honor for a radio piece from the Society of Professional Journalists. He interned with WLNE-TV in Providence, RI & WCIA-TV in Champaign, Illinois, which eventually led to an associate producer position on the station's afternoon lifestyle program.

Originally from Massachusetts, Mershon is excited to learn more about what the South has to offer (already a fan of that Southern hospitality).  He enjoys cooking and eating, but also getting outside and enjoying a good hike around the Natural State.
